    • Beach / nice hotel for 20 hour transit

      by MCLF Online Now Nov 6, 2013 at 9:11 AM

      I have a long transit in Abu Dhabi. I arrive at 1AM and my flight leaves the same day at 10PM on route to Sydney. I'd like to stay in a nice hotel where I can relax, use the pool, maybe go to one of the private beaches, maybe venture out to a restaurant. I realise it's not particularly cultural of me but I really just want to relax before the long flight so not too fussed about seeing the sights. I've emailed a few hotels but they all seem intent on charging me for two nights accommodation because I'll be checking in late.

      Can anyone recommend one where I can check out in the afternoon but still use some of the hotel facilities until I have to go back to the airport.

      Thanks so much!

      I want to relax and swim after a long flight, go shopping & do a tour before i head off to see a friend in Oman. Most of all i want to feel comfortable e.g eating out alone. I do NOT want to be mistaken for a prostitute - sorry but I spent an eight hour flight from London next to an appalling man who spent the entire flight extolling the various virtues of various high end Abu Dhabi hotels for their amazing selection of Russian girls to a poor UK Abu Dhabi student .. Kind of put me right off Abu Dhabi and I now worry about staying there.. is it safe?

      When I was in Dubai in Jan 2010, I found out before I visited that there was a particularly popular and reliable retailer in the Diamond Park Mall where a tourist could purchase a diamond ring with full confidence. At that time I didn't know exactly what I wanted but I do now!
